DescriptionVN40028: 13" Lobster / Fish SplitterVictorinox Forschner
Take control with the Victorinox 40028 Lobster / Fish Splitter. Essentially a beefed up chef's knife, the lobster/fish splitter packs a punch by adding weight and blade length to the mix. With a 13 inch blade and an extra heavy carved rosewood handle, this knife is built to perform. Great for seafood, but also excellent for powering through bone and large sections of select meats! Backed by a lifetime warranty, the Victorinox 40028 is a great buy.
It has a rosewood handle, adding a touch of class to any culinary setting. As with all Victorinox knives, the handle is ergonomically designed to minimize wrist tension and provides a natural fit. Hand-washing of wooden handles is recommended.
The blade has an exceptionally keen, razor-sharp edge. The high carbon, stainless steel blade is hand finished by skilled craftsmen at Victorinox in Switzerland. A special tempering process is used to produce an edge that can be resharpened over and over again. Each Victorinox knife is stamped from a single sheet of metal. The blade is then hardened, tempered, ground, polished, etched and finished.
This Victorinox product, which is made in Switzerland, has been marketed in the U.S. under the R.H. Forschner brand name since 1937. As of 2009, it is now being sold in the U.S. under the Victorinox brand name. It was Forschner 40028, and is now Victorinox 40028.
